Gift from a friend

Thank you all so much for commenting on my new start for 2009! You are all so great to cheer me on. It got me motivated to really work on it, I am close to being done on the first block now. I’ll be posting photos of it this weekend.

So, I am in total shock still. On Wednesday I received a package from a friend. I’ve known her for a few years now & we met over on Livejournal. She was stitching the Mirabilia mermaids at the same time I was so we connected and have become friends since then. Well, we decided to send each other Christmas presents this year. I made her the red and white project bag, and she sent me this…

I opened the box to find this beautiful sampler. It is by Hillside Samplings, and she stitched it so perfectly. It even has our family’s initials on it! I am in love with it. I started crying when I saw it, it was so sweet of her to make this for me, I will treasure this forever! sorry my pictures aren’t great, it’s so dark when I get home at night!)

What a wonderful friend I have, I am so blessed to have such good friends in my life.
